A must read book for all Clergy, Christian Parents, and Young Adults


Why is this a must read book for all Clergy and Christian Parents?
.
Because it shows the phenomenon that is occurring all over the United States.
Youth and young adults are seeking religious orthodoxy and this book explains why.
.
Clergy will want to know what is going on in the hearts, minds, and souls of the youth and young adults. And if they truly want to feed their souls, meet their needs, this book will shed light on their inner most desires, their longing, and their needs. This generation (Generation X) are unique and ministering to them requires a significant difference in approach, much different than you might think.
.
Parents will want to read this book to understand why their child is acting the way they are, especially from a spiritual sense. They have witness the breakup of their own families or friends' families. They have experienced the dark side of the sexual revolution and are seeking some kind of meaning and structure. What parents have been seemingly comfortable with, fulfilled with, isn't adequate for this generation.
.
Young Adults will want to read this book not only for confirmation on their feelings, on why they have felt unfulfilled by what has been offered - or not offered, and give hope for a generation that will bring holiness back to the world.

Born between 1965 and 1983, the young adults of Generation X grew up in an era of unprecedented wealth and consumerism. Rebelling against the liberal family, social, and academic environments in which they were raised, some have made strengthening their faith a priority.
.
The New Faithful is a groundbreaking book that examines the growing trend toward religious orthodoxy among today's young adults.
.
Author and journalist Colleen Carroll offers strong opinions on how this movement might transform an American society steeped in moral relativism and secularism.
.
Blending investigative journalism with in-depth analysis, Carroll seeks the reasons behind the choice of orthodoxy in a society that often denigrates traditional morality and rejects organized religion
